We’re on the hunt for the most innovative businesses and social enterprises emerging from QMUL.

Are you a QMUL student or graduated less than two years ago? Do you have a business idea or have already started trading? Is your idea the next big thing?

Here is your opportunity to win up to £10,000 in equity-free awards, as well as expert mentoring and dedicated start-up support through our 12-week QIncubator programme. 

If you have an idea for a business that you’d like to start or grow we have Try It (up to £500), Grow It (up to £5,000) and Build It (up to £10,000) funding awards available.

Our 2018/19 funding deadlines are as follows:

Round 1: Wednesday 26th September 2018 - Sunday 28th October 2018, 11:59pm

Round 2: Wednesday 12th December 2018 - Sunday 3rd February 2019, 11:59pm

Round 3: Wednesday 27th March 2019 - Sunday 28th April 2019, 11:59pm


  • Currently registered QMUL home students and recent graduates who finished their course under two years ago can apply for any of our awards.
  • International students who have Tier 4 (General) Student immigration permission are restricted from the Try It and Grow It awards as they are not permitted to be self-employed, but are eligible to apply via the Build It route as this award supports pre-trade prototype development.
